The University is committed to the full inclusion of individuals with disabilities and to continually improving accessibility of its campus, programs, and activities.
ADA Transition Plan
LCM assisted the University of Minnesota, Mankato to develop an ADA Title II Transition Plan. The plan addresses barriers to programs and services on the school’s 303 acre campus. We structured a phased approach to meet the University’s goals, schedule, and budget.
First, we conducted a physical survey of all facilities and campus routes to identify barriers. We then prepared a questionnaire to evaluate programs and practices and provided accessibility training and technical support to staff. Also, this phase included presentations to administrative and faculty groups involved in student life. Sessions considered accessibility in key areas such as programming, policies and services, online learning, and information technology.
In the final phase LCM reviewed the data with the University to establish remediation priorities for a Transition Plan. This strategic plan facilitates an ongoing process to remove barriers to program accessibility, creating a more inclusive campus environment.
